Says No Link Between Iraq, 9/11
Can you believe this?
Now they say they never said it?
Expect Bush's whore press to play along and say,
Will the Democrats lay down on this one, too?

"I think the press was muzzled, and I think
the press self-muzzled. Certainly television and perhaps
my station was intimidated by the administration and its foot soldiers at Fox News. And it did, in fact,
put a climate of fear and self-censorship, in my view, in terms of the kind of broadcast work we did."
-- Christiane Amanpour, saying CNN dropped the ball, (and thousands died)
"Given the choice, it's better to be
viewed as a foot soldier for Bush than a spokeswoman for al-Qaeda."
-- Fox News spokeswoman Irena Briganti Attribution
Typical FOX News - anyone who's not on Bush's payroll works for al Qaeda.
And, Ms Briganti, those are NOT the choices. You could
report just the facts and stop
cheering so loudly for the Illegal Fraud, but then you'd certainly be fired for insubordination.
A federal appeals court postponed the Oct. 7 recall election Monday in
a decision that threw an already chaotic campaign into utter turmoil.
Musclehead called on the secretary of state
to appeal on behalf of Cali--fornians.
Both he and Davis said they would continue their campaigns in the meantime.
"Historically, the courts have upheld the rights
of voters, (Forgive him, he's new to politics)
and I expect that the court will do so again in this case," Mr. Shriver said in a statement.
"The people have spoken, and their word should, and will, prevail."
This is really good news for California, and really bad news for
Governor Gang Bang.
His strategery was to say, "Hasta la vista" until election day, but now that's off.
If the election is held in March, that gives him plenty of time to "bone up" on the issues,
but that means he's got time to tell the voters what important services he plans to cut.
The "quick and easy" steal is endangered.
The Boondocks toon that many papers refused to run on Sunday
it's true! The press wants to
protect the never-elected wartime deserter
"I will never, as a Commander in Chief,
send our sons and daughters
and brothers and sisters to war without telling you the truth."
-- Howard Dean, 8/25/2002
Gee, that's quite a change from the lying bastard we have now...
"That's not fair - I need Saddam's oil to make Poppy proud.
You see, he always liked Jeb best, and with just a few hundred lives
and a few hundred billion dollars, I might make Daddy proud of me..."
Three assailants gunned down the police chief of a city west of Baghdad Monday
in an ambush that underscored the perils for Iraqis who join U.S.-backed security forces.
"The three attackers opened fire with machine
guns, shot one of the tires of the chief's car
and then approached the vehicle and shot him at least 25 times," said his driver.
Why would any Iraqi join the "coalition" if we can't protect them?
Do you know what France did to citizens who helped the Nazi's take over in 1939?
"I don't want to speculate... Sept. 11 is over
with now, it's done, it's history and we can put it behind us."
- Whistle Dick Cheney, when asked about Saudi Arabia's ties to al Qaeda
I'll get over Chimpy stealing the election
and shut up about having an AWOL Idiot-In-Chief squatting
in Al Gore's house when the GOP gets over Clinton's blowjob and shuts up about Monica.
Joe Conason's Journal
Former Whitewater crank L. Jean Lewis will soon be in charge of
preventing Pentagon corruption, and Democrats should be raising hell.
Joe's a kidder - the Democrats? ...show some outrage?
Whenever the comeback kid shows up, his
enraged pursuers are always close behind.
The latest to resurface is L. Jean Lewis -- the Whitewater crank who made big national
headlines once upon a time. Amazingly, she has been appointed to an important executive
position in the Defense Department.
The Bush administration has rewarded various
Clinton pursuers from Kenneth Starr’s staff
with federal patronage, of course. (Brett Kavanaugh and John Bates, two principal authors
of the appalling Starr Report, were among the most fortunate veterans of the Clinton jihad,
although they were scarcely alone in winning plum jobs in the Justice Department and the
White House. It was all part of what Bush spinners used to call "changing the tone.")
But Lewis is very special.
Clinton had urged Clark to enter the race, but he is
not expected to take sides in the primary fight.
Wes, I have a suggestion:
Study the Gore campaign, then do the opposite.
I'm so old, I just got a refund from State Farm Insurance because
I'm less likely (?) to have a wreck at this advanced age.
Subject: American wounded
You say in your daily casualty tab that
there's maybe 1,200 wounded
but have reported on your site that over 6,000 have been taken off the
battlefield for medical attention. Discrepency?
J, this is the last place to look for accurate numbers, but "wounded"
means hurt by
bullets or a car wreck, whatever, but not downed via pneumonia or heat exhaustion.
"Last night's Democratic debate was on the
Fox News Channel. It was on Fox and it was sponsored
by the Black Congressional Caucus. And it was on Fox. So, I guess my point is that's like the plantation
sponsoring some kind of planting festival. I'm not sure what Fox's angle is, but I'm pretty sure it's evil."
-- Jon Stewart
As soon as I heard the decision of the 9th Circuit appeals court in California I immediately planned my day to surf
and listen to right wing fanatics respond. They did not disappoint. Rush, Sean, Rusty, Mike Savage, and today Laura
Ingram all went racial, homophopic, anti-semitic, and per usual anal retentive in their misinformation mode. I've heard
it all - the racist attacks on the intelligence of black and Latino voters; the kind of Jew bashing that make the Palestinians
look like homicide bombers in drag; the kind of rhetoric that keeps conservative talk show hosts in the AAAA league
of the genre'; abrasive, abusive, accusatory, and anal retentive.

On yesterday's page, you wrote (re: the job losses),

DUDE! Have you been listening to one
single thing Howard Dean is saying?
That's his absolute favorite subject on which to hammer Chimpy - it's in every one
of his stump speeches, to the point where I'm a little bored with it now - and Dean
is no less truthful on every other subject where the Bushies are screwing this country blind.
Bart, I'm a huge fan of Dean's because he
has balls, and he's hammering away on the B.F.E.E.
every damn day that really reminds me of your treehouse. Unlike you, he doesn't drink ha ha
- but, well, look where we've gotten to with a dry drunk as President.
Thanks for listening.

You website is great, and is very important
in these times. You're truly doing G-d's work.
Though I know you believe yourself to be an athiest, I am a believer, and an orthodox Jew
who is very involved with interfaith dialogue with Christians and Muslims, but I agree with
your take on many forms of organized religion, and the corruption that ruins them.
But most importantly, you realize what B.F.E.E. is really about evil, and I support you all the way.
Have a great day, Bart

Tuesday, I got to see Dr. Henry Lee testify in a trial on Court TV.
He's damn good on the witness stand.
He didn't take any crap from this DA, and several times stopped him
in mid-word to say, "That's not right, back up!"
The DA tried to get him so say stuff he
didn't want to say.
The DA tried to get him flustered and tried to trip him up,
but finally, Lee got fed up with this bully and said, "Brow me."
The DA in the Scott Peterson trial better do his homework.

Hey Condi, your arrogant asshole of a boss
told the entire world to fuck off.
He said he was going to murder Baghdad no matter what every other country said,

ABC to continue sitcom without Ritter
ABC's "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter" will continue despite John Ritter's death
and will show the TV family coping with his character's loss, the network said Tuesday.
"Everybody recognizes that John loved that show.
... He'd have wanted the show to continue,"
Lloyd Braun, chairman of ABC Entertainment Television Group, told a telephone news conference.
Braun and ABC Entertainment President Susan
Lyne said the sitcom will debut next Tuesday as planned
and that the network will air the three episodes Ritter filmed before his death last week.
After that, the series co-starring Katey
Sagal (news) will go into repeats while writers retool it
and production starts. No date was given for when the show will return to the air.
I don't mind that the show is going on -
I even think it's kinda cool,
but don't lie to us and say you're doing it to honor Ritter's memory.
"Eight Rules" is the closest thing ABC has to a hit - they're doing it for the money.
Subject: Governator Hard-On
In response to the Ca. Appeals Court's decision to delay the recall election, Knot-head said:
"Historically, the courts have upheld the rights

Schwarzenegger said. "The people have spoken, and their word should, and will, prevail."
What about the people who voted Davis into
office in the general election?
Will their voters rights be upheld?
Their votes obviously don't matter because they were cast for a Democrat.
The would-be Governator is learning the Republican ways pretty fast.
Either that or he's wired directly to Karl Rove. I tell you what.

"Never explain, never complain," Henry
Ford II said after wrecking a car that was not a Ford,
accompanied by a lovely woman who was not his wife. This mantra, not original with Ford and
always handy, could be the motto of the Bush administration. It has veered from one policy to
another, changed direction on a dime, said one thing and done another -- all without complaining
or explaining. Particularly on foreign policy, George Bush has been all over the place. During the
presidential campaign, he denigrated nation-building -- he would do no such thing. Now we are up
to our eyeballs in building a nation in Iraq, where, it could be argued, there never was one to begin with.
The gun, not the ballot box, is what
held that nation together...
In diplomacy, in foreign affairs, in the waging of war and maybe in protecting America, he has made
mistake after mistake. Like Henry Ford II, he may never complain and he may never explain.
But when you look back, there's still a wreck in the road."

How long before we hit 600? Or 1000?

Perhaps 1,200 wounded - missing arms, legs and eyes.
